Continuing Ministerial Development
The Ministry Development Team primarily supports clergy, Readers and retired clergy by organising a programme of events, including those aimed at clergy at the various stages of their ministry; administering grants for clergy and Readers; administering Extended Study Leave for clergy and supporting and advising on further study. For clergy and Readers who are in the first four years of ministry, the Team runs the IME Phase 2 programme. For more information, click on the links below.
We offer a programme of workshops and events, some organised by the Ministry Development Team and some by other organisations in the diocese. Click here for the CMD Programme 2017 – 2018.
